Our neighbor has an estate in the outskirts of Calicut, a place called Kallanod. Kallanod is famous for the cartoonist Paul Kallanod. The drive took an hour and 30 minutes. The place was totally packed with rubber plantations. Learned some interesting aspects of getting rubber to the industries from the plantations.
